At the guts of their music is funk: deep and fluid, soulful and raunchy and totally butt-wigglingly funky. Add to that layers of New Orleans groove, soul, Mississippi Hill Country Blues and even rock and also you get Deltaphonic.
This is their third album however the final two simply didn’t have the resonance and the sheer brass-necked confidence that this does.
They are a 3 piece, led by Andrew T. Weekes on guitar and vocals (he additionally acts as predominant songwriter), Paul Provosty (previously of Earphunk) on lead guitar, and alternating drummers Trenton O’Neal and Ciaran Brennan. The album additionally options members of a few of the most notable acts within the New Orleans scene immediately, together with backup singer Josh Kagler (The Revivalists), bassist Jerry “Jblakk” Henderson (Big Sam’s Funky Nation), and keys participant Andriu Yanovski (BOOGIE T.RIO, Cha Wa).
I can actually say that, whereas they’ve touches of many different bands of their sound, there may be no-one who combines all the weather like they do and I discovered myself listening to the album via repeatedly simply to benefit from the music that was pouring out of my audio system.
There isn’t any wasted area on the album, each observe hits the mark and whether or not it’s the soulful groove of ‘Starlit’ or the deeper funk of ‘Liars’ or the wistful jazz of ‘Denounment’, the music has some nice contact and really feel.
Bloody high quality hear!.
